  • Arrived at PS HQ around 11am. They break up the interview into 4 portions. HR interview, HR presentation, facility tour, sim evaluation. I did the HR interview first and questions that were asked were pretty standard.  Then a scenario where the PIC is flying an approach what sorts of things as the FO am I looking for? If he goes below the MDA what do you do? What if after you let him know to go missed he continues even further? What do you do? They concluded the HR interview by allowing me to ask questions of which I had a few. HR interview was probably where I preformed best. You have to remember that at PS you're the point of contact for all customers. They really want to see what you'll be a good...

    Best of luck to you all! Once first contacted they will ask about a time that works best for you to do a Virtual Tech Interview. This virtual interview will be regarding all instrument knowledge (and some VFR knowledge). They will send you plates before the virtual interview that they will use. Review, study, and know everything about those plates. If they were to point on any plate and say, "what is that? or what does that mean?" Etc. you should know. Be ready for a scenario with...

    Relied a lot on other feedback from this source and a few other pilots in the hiring process just prior to me. My experience closely aligned with what others have reported here, except that the process was drawn out over about 7 months. I suppose my luck in the timing was just such as the company seemed to be adjusting to some changes, including more aircraft purchase and a boost in hiring. First was the technical interview (conducted virtually). It almost exclusively focused on technical...

    Technical wasn’t bad at all, sent some help plates a week prior. Study them. Got a call 2 days after to schedule the in person HR and Sim eval. Travel accommodations were easy, nice hotels. Was there for about 6 hours. Learned a bit about the company w the presentation. Toured the hangar. HR part was quick just asked some simple questions. Sim was laggy and not a great sim( a local flight schools) overall just a departure and ILS. Nothing too difficult. Just show that you can fly it...

    The interview was fairly straightforward. First interview is a technical interview lasting about 20 minutes. They send several charts in advance and they ask about a few of them. Refer to study guide for questions. They fly you out to Portsmouth, NH for the in person interview. That lasted about 4 hours. There was about an hour long HR presentation, hr interview where 4 questions were asked, document review, and a simulator evaluation. The sim consisted of one departure, some vectoring, and...

    Straightforward and similar to the rest. Had a technical interview on Jeppesen charts sent by the company before being invited for an in person interview that was primarily introduction on the company followed by a simple sim...

    Very straight forward. The planesense team is exceptional, and professional. Please dress for the occasion. You’re applying to be a professional pilot, flying very expensive aircraft, with very high end clients. (Wear a suit……) HR portion was straight forward. No studying required. The SIM was also straight forward. You’re flying a G1000 in a sky-lane 182. They treat it like a 172 and leave the prop and mixture full forward, so no extra thinking is required. You...

    Very straight forward, as everyone else has stated study the plates well ahead of time for the tech interview, got invited for in person for HR/sim eval and facility tour. Hr was very straight forward, they are looking that you will fit the company mission statement as well as work well with other people. Sim eval is KMMU sid and then vectors to the ils back in to the missed. They are not looking for perfection just looking for you to be able to listen to directions well and are able to...

    Real straight forward. Tech interview was going over Jeppesen plates and a couple of IFR questions. In person interview, started with a presentation about Planesense, HR interview was a few questions about yourself then a scenario about a go around with a non responsive captain. Sim was easy enough KMMU Morristown 7 departure the vectors to the ILS23 and a missed...

    The prior reviews for the interview are spot on. The HR presentation is well done and very informative, and gives a very clear picture of what working for PlaneSense as a pilot is like. The HR interview was straight forward and relaxed. I was asked a scenario, (view the study guide of this website, including the Sim/Scenario section).   After that, I got a tour of the hangar, checked out a PC12 in hangar and was on my way home. Session started at 10 and I was done by 1p. Received...

    The HR and technical portion was done on Teams. It was fairly straight forward. 91.175, alternate requirements, STAR and SID questions. Used Jep charts. They gave me access to the charts to be used well in advance. Go over them with someone that is familiar with them before your interview and you will be fine. Know 91.175. The in person portion was very straight forward and was a good experience. They are a very first class company. You'll do a HR presentation, meeting with the VP of HR, and...

  11. The information I was looking for regarding PlaneSense was spot on for all the areas, from HR, tech interview, sim evaluation, and interview questions.
